Chili Con Carne

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by owensjo

I got this recipe from watching the Phil Donahue show, the guest who prepared this for the audience presented it as a Wendy's chili copy cat. This tastes like it's been simmering for a long time but only takes about 20 minutes to prepare.

I just loved using the "French Onion Soup" instead of having to chop up an onion like I normally do. The only changes I made was to add a little dash of cayenne for a kick and cut back slightly on the oregano(to me, makes it taste more like spaghetti sauce). This is very good chili, although, I don't think it tasted like "Wendy's" chili, but to me, it was better!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for 2013 Spring PAC event.
